Fay Wray, King Kong
For my money, the 1933 King Kong was the BEST King Kong and it isn’t even close. I also think Fay Wray was the best Ann Darrow and, again, I don’t think it’s even close!
She is so associated with this iconic character that actresses who came after her are more often referred to as, “the one in the Fay Wray role” than they are “Ann Darrow.”
Now that’s when you know you’ve put your fingerprints all over a role!
King Kong was directed by Merian C. Cooper and also stars Bruce Cabot, Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson, and Sam Hardy.
